Health Services assists in the educational process by removing health barriers to learning. The program goals are to maintain a safe and healthy school environment and perform the delivery of health services to student and staff.
The Board will provide for the health and physical well being of students through the establishment of a district-wide School Health Services Plan. The school health plan is described as having three basic functions: (1) provision of a safe and healthy school environment, (2) implementation of an on-going and effective health education curriculum, and (3) delivery of health services to students and staff.
The District's Health Services staff includes registered and licensed-practical nurses. The local health department and other health agencies are consulted regularly. Modifications are made as necessary.
